Fangdd Network (NASDAQ:DUO) stock is rocketing higher on Friday alongside heavy pre-market trading of the investment holding company’s shares.

This has more than 19.6 million shares of DUO stock changing hands as of this writing. That’s well above the company’s daily average trading volume of about 1.6 million shares.

This heavy trading comes despite a lack of news from Fangdd Network. That includes no new press releases or filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

However, this is a week of meme stock rallies. Several companies have seen massive movements in their shares without any news to report. This comes with the return of Roaring Kitty, the individual who started the 2021 meme stock rally.

What to Know About DUO Stock

It’s also worth mentioning that DUO is a penny stock. That comes from its prior closing price of 40 cents and its market capitalization of only $2.577 million. This opens it up to volatility as traders can easily manipulate its shares.

Adding to that is a deadline approaching for DUO stock. The company has until June 10, 2024, to get its stock back above the $1 minimum bid price. If it fails to do so, the company’s shares may be in danger of being delisted.

DUO stock is up 287.8% as of Friday morning.

On Penny Stocks and Low-Volume Stocks: With only the rarest exceptions, InvestorPlace does not publish commentary about companies that have a market cap of less than $100 million or trade less than 100,000 shares each day. That’s because these “penny stocks” are frequently the playground for scam artists and market manipulators. If we ever do publish commentary on a low-volume stock that may be affected by our commentary, we demand that InvestorPlace.com’s writers disclose this fact and warn readers of the risks.
